I always read his name as "Happy" and think damn dude you really don't look like a dude named Happy.
Today is the "Bad Parenting" issue of CDaN. And if the look she's going for is "turtle poking its head out of its shell", then I have to say – nailed it!!
Here are two people destined to return to the primordial ooze of obscurity from whence they slithered. Can't happen soon enough.
Divorce is so ugly. I'm glad they got it sorted oot for the kiddo. I kinda liked him
I think Bethenny didn't want Jason to take the stand and answer questions about what a hose beast she is.
Specifically, these turtles: http://cdn.mos.totalfilm.com/images/f/franklin-and-the-turtle-lake-treasure-645-75.jpg
My parents have been shit talking each other to their children and using them as pawns to hurt the other for over 30 years. Where's my news feature?
(Yes they are still married, and no I don't know why people ask me why I'm not married…)
Her face disturbs me.
They should have named their daughter Hippity Hoppy.
Glad they worked that out. Here's Bethenny's butt.
I thought these were the 2who were faking a nasty divorce whilst having happy hoppy family time round the tea table. Or I might have just made that blind up.
OT ALERT: I can't do the clicky link but have y'all seen the YouTube clip of Aaron Lewis ( frontman for Staind) totally going off on some pervs in the middle of a song? I now love him even more. That is all.
@Riven – hello, that's my life, too. But my parents are almost to 50 years of glorious hatred. But, honey, you can break free – I've been extremely happily married for almost 20 years. Mr. F came from a wacked out, dysfunctional mess, too, and we knew going in that our lives were going to be different. Have faith!
Wouldn't surprise me, @Violet. Anything to generate interest.
I know that I'm about to be super mean right now…but Bethany looks like the Joker.
Hammer, I saw that the other day. Loved it!
@ Riven….ditto…I have the same problem with my parents…and they're still married and live together too.
I'm not savvy enough to make it clicky:( @7 where are you?!?!
I think Bethenny was the one pushing for sole custody – something rarely given. And then she settles after she takes the stand and makes him look bad, but before he takes the stand to reveal all her dirt. She's just sleazy to me
@Riven- my parents have been divorced for almost 25 years and my mother still to this day is bitter and makes snide comments. Anything that he does now she compares to what he did for her or me when I was younger.
Kristen.. Exactly. SHE wanted to testify against Jason without being cross examined or allowing Jason to testify. Jason's parents were also set to take the stand. Betheny just wanted to throw crap about Jason out there and have the last word. She is one selfish piece of work.
I always liked him, on their show he seemed like he wasn't into the whole celebrity, reality tv, fame whore bit and she was the one who was pushing for stardom.
I think the uberbitch Bethenny had designs on getting full custody, probably in an effort to save money she will have to pay Hoppy, and Hoppy fought it and that is why it took 2 years.
Good trip, texas?
She's supposed to have a millionaire now, & is trying to get rid of him without having to pay or have the kid in his life.
I had a thought last week that "she's going to settle so that her side gets out and he won't take the stand". Nobody gets full custody anymore. Brin isn't a possession. Good thing is that the younger the kids are….the more resilient. My kid doesn't remember our divorce and my ex and I are always friendly. If I've ever said anything abt him, it's funny and I tell the good stories too. Kids deserve it. My hubs ex is a crazy spiteful person…those kids will resent her someday.
Y'all know what Catherine Deneuve said about a woman of a certain age having to choose between her face and her ass. Bethenny clearly chose her ass. YIKES! I don't know if all the retin-A and Creme de la Mer in the world can help those lines and dryness.
(And yeah, I'm picking on her, because she has the means to BUY the Creme de la Mer so she has no excuse. And she's a nasty person. Wrote some great recipes, sure, but still…a nasty person.)
@riven. you are my clone 3. my parents hated each other their entire marriage. i never saw them kiss or hold hands or huggmy dad died over 10 yrs ago and my mom still talks shit about him in front of me and i can't stand it and yes.. people wonder why i'm so trigger shy about marriage
hammer girl.. the staind guy stopped the show b/c the minor girl crowd surfing was being molested and he called them out and had security get themgood man!!
@hammer girl.. my mother still makes snide comments too trying to prove SHE WAS THE BETTER PARENT. and i'm like dad died 11 yrs ago you know the competition's over by now don't you think?? she is still trying to prove she was the better parent.drives me pfucking nuts. i can't be in the same room with her for a long time. 5 mins in and she's shit talking my dadi live 3000 miles and a whole time zone away out of spite
Bethanny looks like a shell of her former self. Part of me thinks she deserves it, but part of me is really sad for the life she chose.
Surprised Hoppy didn't bring up drug addiction and ask for sole custody. I think he would have won.
I've tried the moving thing, but I think my mom implanted a homing device in me somewhere. Not to mention I've tried ignoring her phone calls and after the 6th one in a single day she showed up at my place. And at the time I lived 3hrs away!! All I could think was damn I knew I should have hosted a mass orgy/swinger party tonight!
hammer girl.. yeah your gut instincts are always right. or hang some sort of old school underwear on the doorknob as a sign that she will not understand and ignore and just bitch you out over misplacing your dirty laundry.
@Sugarbread clearly we were twinsies separated at birth.
Everyone else with my kind of parents: Thanks for letting me know I'm not alone there. The phrase "stay together for the kids" is atrocious and I used to beg my dad to get divorced for the kids. I actually pity my parents, which is hard to admit, but I do because they're stuck together and after a lifetime of unhappiness they will eventually die miserable and emotionally alone.
Every time my family gets together someone inevitably mentions my unmarried status. My go-to response is that I'm waiting for a love as deep and inspiring as my parents.'
TTM- It was good- thanks.
@Riven-I'm in my 30's and get the same shit said to me by family frequently. I've started telling them I put myself through school, own my car and home outright, and when I find a guy who doesn't bore me to tears I will let them know. Till then, maybe they should help the other much younger girls in the family with their drug problems or multiple baby daddies. That usually shuts them up for the remainder of the visit.
They are ferret faced losers and dont deserve that sweet little girl.
Hammer and riven- my parents were nit happy with each other either, and bitched about the other constantly to me. I wish parents knew how exhausting and damaging that is for the child, adult or not. They are bith dead now, and i have some goid memories, but that crap isnt one of them. I feel your pain, both of you. Hugs.
She has to always have control, and she wanted full control of Bryn.I think Jason does have some dirt on her and was probably ready to use it and she had to cave.I hate the pap photos of them dragging the little girl out to show what good parents they are.
clicky for Hammergirl
high 5 hammer girli tend to point out everybody else's dysfunction's divorce's my 2nd cousin's 4 kids b4 the age of 20 and i'm like say what again??pass the remote and shut your piehole
I don't do reality but had to drop in to say Ms Frankel looks like The Joker. Bad plastic surgery. Cheek implants or whatever they are called are the worst.
Countess, I'm assuming your divorce wasnt splashed all over the tabloids and Internet, right? Kid'sGoing to learn how to read at some point.
